“Ansys is honored to partner with DARC to support the digital design and validation of this critical US national security system.”

Ansys Government initiatives (AGI), an Ansys company (NASDAQ:ANSS), supports Northrop Grumman in the development, testing, and delivery of an Advanced Deep Space Radar (DARC) capability in support of the U.S. Space Force’s Space Systems Command (USSF) Space Domain Awareness Mission ( USSF).

Unlimited possibilities
To break down design and mission boundaries, Ansys gives engineers the power to see how their ideas will perform against millions of variables.

By integrating Ansys’ best-in-class digital mission simulation and engineering solutions, Northrop Grumman has created an open, high-fidelity digital twin prototype environment. Northrop Grumman will also use Ansys’ products to examine radio frequency systems, perform mission-level analysis and leverage digital wire capabilities.

“Ansys is honored to partner with DARC to support the digital design and validation of this critical US national security system,” mentioned Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products at Ansys. “Our simulation and digital mission engineering solutions are proven to accelerate and optimize the development of complex products within leading engineering organizations around the world. We are confident they will similarly benefit the Northrop Grumman DARC team.

This initial DARC contract includes the design, development and delivery of a Site 1 system which is expected to be completed in 2025. The companies are also working together on two additional radar sites to be strategically positioned around the world.
